At Chellaston Academy we believe that it is important for students to understand how to dress smartly and appropriately in preparation for the world of work, interviews and formal occasions. We therefore have the following uniform expectations:

Female Students

  • Black/grey/navy tailored trouser or skirt suit (or tailored jacket/blazer with skirt/trousers)
  • Skirts must be no shorter than 2 inches above the knee. No lycra or skinny jeans are permitted.
  • Plain white/black/navy/grey blouse or formal sleeved top
  • Black formal shoes
  • Plain black or white belts

Male Students

  • Black/grey/navy tailored suit (or tailored jacket/blazer and trousers)
  • Formal white/black shirt
  • Formal black/brown shoes
  • Sixth Form tie

For any student who does not identify as either male or female, a conversation will take place between the student and the Head of Sixth Form to agree a suitable formal uniform.

Sixth Form Ties can be purchased from Uniformality.

Mobile Phones

We encourage the use of mobile technologies as an aid to teaching and learning. Students in the 6th form must set an example to younger students and follow the academy policy – mobile phones or any other electronic devices (MP3 player, iPods etc.) are not to be used or seen between the hours of 8.30am and 3.00pm.

The exceptions to this are using devices in the CHAL, the ILC and DREF for study purposes. This is a privilege that Sixth Form students are given. Mobile phones will be confiscated if students do not follow these rules.

Driving

Student cars are not allowed on site at any time. Students are not permitted to arrange driving lessons during the school day. Attendance at Driving Theory and Practical tests will be authorised providing the absence is requested in advance.

If you choose to park in the roads around the school, please be aware that our neighbours may need to be able to get in and out of their drives during the day. Please ensure that you park thoughtfully, legally and are not overlapping anyone’s driveway.
